What this article outlines is, in fact, the termination clause within the Iranian nuclear deal. A full analysis shows how the language used to craft the deal gives Iran the easy out, the-exit-ramp as soon as the sanctions are lifted.
Paragraph 36 tells us when and how the agreement might end. Both friend and foe have touted this deal as historic and promised (or moaned) that its provisions will stay in place for the long term. But in practice, this is not a ten-year agreement or a fifteen-year agreement or an eternal agreement. Paragraph 36 tells us the truth: Any partybe it Iran or a future U.S. presidentcan essentially ditch the Iran nuclear deal with 35 days notice.
Iran might need to wait a little longeran extra 30 working daysto check a box buried in Annex IV. But, after that, under Paragraph 36, Iran can claim that any of the P5+1 is not meeting its commitments under the agreement. That triggers a 35-day set of meetings. Once that clock runs, Iran can claim the issue has not been resolved to [its] satisfaction and that it deems that the issue constitutes significant non-performance. Iran can then cease performing its commitments under this JCPOA in whole or in part. The agreement is done.
Once Iran has received its $150 billion and locked in long-term business contracts with the West, this quick exit could be an attractive option.

Genius McConnell blocked Cruz’s amendment which would have prevented Obama from lifting sanctions against Iran.
What could happen in very short order is Obama lifting the sanctions followed by Iran walking from the agreement.
Iran would be 150 billion dollars richer, have no sanctions, and continue their nuclear program.
Yup. There it is. Iran agrees, sanctions are lifted, Iran prepares its move to the degree possible under the agreement while sanction-free money rolls in (probably via cronyism), then when the time is ripe start complaining furiously about some involved country (well-versed in the skill, _something_ can be concocted), go thru the motions for a few weeks, terminate the agreement, build the bomb ASAP before Israel makes its move, done.
And during this time, the Obama et al will go after hackers who disseminated contents of Planned Parenthood emails. Gotta have SOME villain to distract the populace with.
So Iran can go nuclear anytime in the next 10 years and not violate the agreement. They would just nullify it with a 2 month notice. That means they attend to go nuclear soon, otherwise they would not have needed that clause.
With the anger of the world, there will be no where for Obama to hide. I have to admit admiration for whoever created this monster. They were thorough.
